Babyscripts App

We’ve recently launched the Babyscripts app for our obstetrics patients. Through this app, our patients have 24/7 access to accurate pregnancy, delivery and postpartum information, as well as Birthplace-specific content (like Birthplace directions, visiting hours and COVID-19 updates) right on their smartphones! If you’re one of our obstetrics patients and are interested in enrolling in the app or learning more about it, please call your physician’s office.

Certified Nurse Midwives

The Birthplace at Salem Hospital is filled with compassionate, experienced staff. Many women choose an nurse midwife for their prenatal care, to prepare them for childbirth. The care team is experienced with variety of natural birthing techniques. Our midwives work closely with you to create a birth plan that fits your needs.
